#THROWBACKTHURSDAY has come round again and you might find yourself wondering where the week has gone. But this Thursday at etailPR instead of throwing back we are looking at what exciting things are to come by THROWING FORWARD!  As you have seen in our previous blog post we are launching a BRAND NEW network for all our bloggers and influencers. It will be simple and easy to use along with a gorgeous new look. So, why don’t you join us by THROWING FORWARD too? Now is the perfect opportunity for you to give us a try! Why not sign up for this month’s sample opportunities before they end, giving yourself new products to try and giving your bloggers new content!.

As we are trying a new look, why not try one for yourself!?

Has there always been that one look you’ve seen on Instagram or Pinterest that you have thought about experimenting with but have been too nervous to try? Could your look do something a bit different? Two brands this week that will help you achieve this are Spooky Eyes and Body Jewellery Shop!

Whether you want to add an extra pop of colour to your outfit or just wish to enhance your natural beauty SPOOKY EYES contact lenses will achieve this safely and effortlessly whilst maintaining your own individuality. If you are not sure what to expect why not have a read when a member of the team tried the White Mason contact lenses for herself. Our SPOOKY EYES campaign is open to any blogger regardless of whether you are in the UK or the US or how many followers you have; so why not pop your blogger network cherry by applying for a sample from Spooky Eyes? 

In the words of Michael Kors himself; "Accessories are the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit…" Body Jewellery Shop brings you that exclamation point. The brand is on the network now offering you a variety of products from tragus jewellery to fake ear cuffs all in a variety of cute styles, which will compliment every look in your wardrobe.

The fake body jewellery available is beautiful and realistic offering you the opportunity to try the new summer trend of piercings without the commitment, allowing you to match beauty looks sported by Rihanna and Jessie J.

By signing up this week you can experience both these beautiful brands for yourself whilst bringing new and exciting content to your viewers. The process is quick and easy, and with the launch of the new bloggers network next week the process going forward will be made even easier. So here’s to a THROW FORWARD for you and for us. Log in NOW!

OMG. Get the 4th August in your diaries ladies and gentlemen, the BRAND NEW etailPR network is here!!

We have been hard at work developing a brand new network for bloggers and influencers of all sizes that will launch on the 4th August 2015!

The lovely developers at WeHeartDigital have helped us create a network that works better for you. The new network is shiny, polished and new and is waiting for you all to get on it!

The new network aims to provide a fun, informative and helpful tool for bloggers and digital influencers that want to make the most out of their blogs, social platforms and video channels.

The new network will be now known simply as etailPR and the simplicity of the network does not end there!

Long gone are the days of missing emails and confusing campaigns! This new network, of which we have invested a lot of time and money in, promises to make applying for samples, signing up for Lead Gen and running CPC campaigns on your blog, easy and simple to do. 

Our mission is to provide you with the best tools, the best competitions, the best opportunities to improve your blog!! etailPR is getting educational!

What should I expect?

On the 4th August there may be a short period of downtime where you are redirected to another page. However, as soon as the network is up and running, we will send out a tweet and an email reminding you to log on NOW! When you log in, expect to see a completely new layout, with brand new exclusive campaigns, competitions, tips and also your own area to host a profile page that brands can see!

Why should I swap over to the new network?

To celebrate the launch we will be providing you with BRAND NEW, EXCLUSIVE, EXCITING deals from TOP BRANDS. In the run up to the launch we will be releasing the names and launch dates of these exclusive deals. 

THE ONE TO WATCH OUT FOR: On 4th August we will be giving away a ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME PRIZE to all of those who move over to the new network. So, not only will you have access to all these exciting deals, but you will also enter the draw to WIN with etailPR.

The old network address and system will no longer work after the 4th August. Thus, if you want to remain a part of the new and improved network, you will need to log in, change your password and update your brand new profile page!

What are the main changes?

There are tonnes of improvements but here are some of the most significant:

The look of the site is totally new and fresh making it so much easier to navigate!

The network now automatically works out which campaigns you are eligible for and presents these to you in your dashboard so you know exactly what you can apply for!

Emails are now fully functional so you can expect both accept and decline emails to be sent out as soon as decisions have been made at etailPR HQ. 

Every person on the network will have their very own profile page which will be viewable by bloggers and brands. This space will be your chance to sell yourself and get on those campaigns!

The site will be the beginning of a rapidly expanding, growing, etailPR. We will be implementing changes along the way and going above and beyond to make your etailPR experience THE BEST.

What do I do if I experience technical difficulties?

As the network changes over we do expect that there will be some glitches. If you are experiencing any difficulties we please do ask that you first check our Twitter page where we will update you with any known faults. If the problem is not on Twitter and continues to persist then please drop us an email to and bear with us whilst we deal with the large amount of emails we expect at this time. 

Nearer the time, we will provide you with information on what to expect around the time of the launch. There will be a little down-time as the network swaps over, but we are aiming to be up, running and totally with you by the next day.


Stay tuned on Twitter, Instagram and this blog for more news!

We also have to say a HUGE thankyou to all of you who participated in helping us test this new network and provided us with feedback. You're the BEST!

If you're a brand and you want to be the FIRST on the new etailPR Blogger Network. Please get in touch at

etailPR Top 10 Blogger Tips: Guest Blog Post from an Etail PR intern

Hi I'm Katie! It’s my first day interning at etailPR and as a blogger my self (What Katie Says), I’m relishing the opportunity to get stuck right in and create a guest post! This fabulous blogger network is continually growing and with that, comes new bloggers every single day. I mean, who wouldn’t want to become a blogger? The opportunities are endless and 100% fits in with the quote ‘work hard, play hard.’ However some bloggers, new or old, need some advice along the way, which is why we here at etailPR want to give you the helping hand you might need.

Here are my top 10 blogging tips:

1. Create your own voice
Blogging is your own corner of the Internet with nobody to tell you how you should or shouldn’t write. Always let your personality shine through with your posts and it will help your readers connect with you! Don’t be afraid to write in a chatty tone and don’t feel like you should copy someone else’s style.

2. Get social network savvy
There’s no doubt some of you know social networking like the back of your hand, yet I’m sure some of you are still asking yourself ‘What’s a hashtag?!’ (You may be living under a rock). As a blogger, you need to be a pro. Follow your favourite bloggers on all social media platforms, talk with other bloggers, swap posts to read, upload pictures that fit with the style of your blog, and always continue your tone of voice across all platforms! Use the hashtags #blogger #fblogger #bblogger to attract readers. You will be surprised at how quickly your following and readership increases once you’ve nailed social networking!

3. Picture perfect
It’s a proven fact that we have short attention spans. The use of pictures can help to entice readers to your blog post. Don’t scare them away with an overwhelming amount of text with just a tiny picture at the bottom. Put photos at the top of a post to then continue through out, make them big and clear and don’t be afraid to play around with some editing. My favourite blogs have a theme to their pictures, so find a niche for yours. You don’t need a fancy camera; just good lighting will make a photo blog-worthy! Tag your photos with relevant tags as well; this will increase your SEO.

4. Creative content
There are thousands of blogs in the blogosphere, so keep your content creative. Always keep an eye out for inspiration for new blog posts that haven’t been done before! If you ever get stuck, put a new spin on it. Why not ‘What’s in my gym bag’ as apposed to a usual ‘What’s in my bag’ post. Keep thinking outside of the box and it will make readers want to read your's over everyone else’s!

5. Stick to a schedule
This keeps readers excited. You don’t have to blog everyday, once a week or even a fortnight can be enough! Just make sure to always publish your post on the same day at the same time. This can be easily done by scheduling your post rather than publishing straight away. You can then count down on social networking, so followers get excited about reading your new posts, and can get in a routine of checking your blog, say on a Friday evening. Post tweets such as: ‘Can’t wait to hear what you all think of this weeks blog post! It’s going live tomorrow!’

6. Clear layout, clear mind
A simple layout creates more attention to your blog post. A bold title at the top and white background behind font makes it easier to read and makes photos stand out. Don’t be afraid to put your personality out through your design.

7. Be honest
Once you get a certain amount of followers, you will start to receive some sample post opportunities. Like the ones we offer here at etailPR! (Take a look at our network here). Always be honest with what you’re writing, if you say you love something, your readers want to be able to trust your opinion. Don’t let them waste their money on something just because you wanted more free stuff!

8. Get linking
Always provide a link to products you have mentioned. This makes it a so much easier for readers to locate the products/items you are referring to! As well as this, link to other posts of yours to keep readers on your blog as long as possible.

9. Avoid negativity
No one wants to read a really negative blog, so avoid writing too many bad reviews. Whilst of course you have to be honest, maybe think about avoiding a review at all, rather than moaning. This may stop brands wanting to work with you in the future.

10. Enjoy blogging!
Blogging can be so much fun, don’t get caught up under the pressure. Keep calm and blog on. Always remember why you started in the first place!

I hope these tips have helped! If you have any more you’ve picked up on the way don’t be afraid to let us know!
